Joint Semantic Predicate & Semantic Role Annotation
for German (GNVN)

Standard and non-standard GNVN Corpora for German

We provide semantic annotation for standard and non-standard varieties of German texts annotated jointly with GermaNet senses for verbal predicates (GN) and an adapted VerbNet-style role inventory for semantic arguments (VN).

These resources were created in the CLARIN-D curation project "Semantic Annotation for Digital Humanities" by the ICL at Heidelberg University and the UKP Lab at the Technical University of Darmstadt.

The Semantic Role Triple Dataset for German (SR3de) provides parallel PropBank-, VerbNet-, and FrameNet-style semantic role annotation on a portion of the annotations available here.
